I have no problem with fracking as long as the shock wave stays on the property under contract. I’ve seen water wells collapse and need to be redrilled from the slides.
My neighbor was on television news showing how he could rinse a milk jug out 2 times with water from their faucet and then put water in it again and light it with a match. There was that much gas in his water after they drilled.
They are not even properly grouting the wells to seal between layers.
My question is, how would you like them stealing the gas off your property by fracking on your neighbors property?
I’m not against drilling, but please cut out the games!
I have heard way to many local people having problems to not doubt any report that says any drilling is totally safe, so I am on your side but know we need to continue drilling.
I have not studied geology (yet) but from what I have seen on the sides of cliffs, the earth’s layers are not all perfectly horizontal and they are not even all the same thickness so there is going to be variation at every drilling site. When there is a lot of money to be made, whether it is with oil or snake oil, I always take both sides into consideration.
“My neighbor was on television news showing how he could rinse a milk jug out 2 times with water from their faucet and then put water in it again and light it with a match.”
Which doesn’t prove jack.
I have seen the same thing done in NY State.
There is no drilling allowed here.
Gas can and does get into water wells naturally.
But it is easier (and more profitable) to wait for drilling to begin in your area before complaining about it.
I don’t know where you are from, but stimulation does not take place in the vertical portion of the well.
Fracturing is done in the horizontal portion thousands of feet below the aquifer.
Collapsing wells are not new and have taken place after a thunderstorm.
With regard to lighting the water, people have done that for decades. That is methane....not natural gas. It occurs underground and is in most water supplies (in varying quantities).
They cannot “steal” gas off your property. That is a lie. Unless they have a lease with you, they cannot drill under your property. That is a significant lawsuit and since it has not been filed, it is probably bogus.
people north of Denver can do one better, they can light the 'water' on fire right out of the faucet.
Finally got news coverage of it after fracking began.
They 'forgot' to incude the fact that this has gone on for years, long before fracking began. I sure can't imagine why.
